No one can really blame Mozilla for 'breaking compatibility with add-ons'. It is up to the developers' to keep their plugin updated.

Downloaded nightly but did not notice the tabs-don't-resize-on-close fixed, or is on aurora only? (I doubt), I'm torned between nightly and aurora, I don't mind the risk of crashes since I have 3 other browsers here.

Have you tried disabling addon compatibility?

Can someone run through how to set this please?

I've tried adding extensions.CheckCompatibility.6.0a >> False ... (is it boolean? btw) ... but it doesn't seem to work.

I love how Firefox claims to be "native" on OS X but in reality there is a lot about Firefox that isn't. It's certainly not a Cocoa application, for starters... And they didn't even put half a lick of effort into the UI design for version 4 compared to how different the Windows version now looks.

That said, the browser has still grown on me and I'm happy that progress (of any kind) was made from 3.6. The downside now is that I have to use gfxCardStatus to lock my GPU so it doesn't kick into discrete graphics all the time when I'm on battery. But I'm even becoming accustomed to making that part of my daily process anyway.

Any idea when Firefox will catch up in image handling to the competition.

What they ought to do is slim down the fox a bit, and maybe embed Flash in it the same way chrome does.

It is a Cocoa application, but that just means it uses the Cocoa APIs, nothing to do with how "native" the app is (And in that regard it's really on-par with Safari, both UIs are custom)

When they work out how to make images not take up RAM, and after that I'm sure they'll share it with the competition (since every application uses RAM to store data)

I don't actually believe it uses Cocoa APIs, and if it does, it surely doesn't use enough of them. I'm not able to utilize any of the native Cocoa features that you can use in any other app, like TextEdit. I should be able to pop up the quick dictionary, or use the native OS level spell checker, among other things. There was a convo in a thread about this not too long ago in the Apple Support forums.

links?

The first post had a link to "Are We Native Yet?"

Then they should be more specific. And since when did they call that being "native"? Native means native to a platform. Supporting HTML5 standards means being "standards compliant".

And I hope you're joking about the Microsoft bit. :blink:

There's been some progress on tab animations for reordering and detaching (still a work in progress) and the new site identity block. There is a tryserver build available if you want to check it out, but understand that it could potentially be very unstable, though I've haven't run into any problems so far.

This is one feature I was hoping would make it into Firefox 5. I didn't like the drop-marker style of reordering when it was first introduced to Fx, and now it just feels terribly outdated. It seems pretty far along so I'm hoping they make an exception for this fix and push it to Aurora.
